BEAUTIFUL BORDERS PROJECT Perennial flower beds enhance the beauty of vegetable gardens and create lasting neighborhood curb appeal. They also provide important environmental benefits to our urban landscape by increasing the drainage capacity of soil and attracting pollinators. Keep Growing Detroit is seeking applications from established community, school, or market gardens in the Garden Resource Program that are interested in installing a Beautiful Border in their garden. Successful applications will receive support installing a customized perennial flower border this fall that is based on our Beautiful Border designs. Take a look at our 4 Beautiful Border designs here.
Beautiful Boarder applications are due by August 20th and can be downloaded here.
